Usher and Australian boy band 5 Seconds of Summer are headed to the MTV Video Music Awards.

Both will perform at this year's awards ceremony Sunday, Aug. 24, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, at Inglewood, Calif.'s recently renovated venue The Forum.

Usher, a two-time VMA winner, returns after a three-year absence. The "Voice" coach previously performed "OMG" and "DJ Got Us Fallin' in Love" in 2010, and a mashup of "Confession" and "Yeah" in 2004.

5 Seconds of Summer, consisting of members Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Calum Hood and Ashton Irwin, will make their VMAs debut. The foursome is currently prepping their July 22 self-titled debut album, which features singles "She Looks So Perfect" and "Amnesia."

“Can't wait to play the VMAs this year,” said 5 Seconds of Summer in a statement. "It’s a huge honor and we always love coming over to the States. We can't wait to play on such a big stage!”

They join previously announced Ariana Grande, who also makes her VMAs debut.

Last year's VMAs, held at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, drew 10.1 million viewers, a 66 percent jump from 2012.
